Despite this promise, there are significant specific concerns to overcome, particularly perceptions of thermal stress build-up and inertia induced by specified incumbent technologies like low-emissivity glass and external shading. Even with these adoption challenges, energy security and regulatory drivers will propel the market from today’s $450 million to $863 million by 2018. Emerging technologies like waterborne coatings of ceramic oxides will open up the possibility of using polyolefins in this application, having previously been limited to polyesters, polycarbonates, and fluoropolymers.
